Who can come?
Everyone can come “do” missions in the Golden Isles of Southeast Coastal Georgia. Some churches just send their youth/students, but Golden Isles Ministries (GIM) wants students, adults, and children to join us in reaching this resort area with the Gospel and Love of Jesus Christ. Youth groups, college students, BCM, families, senior adults, and even children can all do a day or week of ministry with GIM!
How much does it cost?
The GIM registration fee is $35 per person. This fee includes: two t-shirts, one name-tag, one slip-disc, and ministry site placement. Lodging, transportation, and food is your responsibility; however, GIM has a few different packages to meet your group’s need. You can find more information on our “pricing” tab of this website or by clicking here. Your partnership with GIM means continued ministry and personal follow-up on every decision made.
Where can we stay?
There are many opportunities to house your ministry group in affordable lodging. GIM has an excellent mission group building on the campus of the Southeast Baptist Association (SBA) with an adjacent kitchen & eating room that can house 32. We partner with the Comforts Suites at exit 38 and do all the reservations for you. There are select churches that allow GIM mission groups to use their facilities, and GIM arranges this with the church. Some groups have even rented resort condos/houses in the past.
What does a typical trip look like?
You will do a day camp (i.e. VBS, BYBC) of some sort. In the summer, we do day camps in the morning and at night. During the school year, we do FUN camps in the afternoon in neighborhoods following school. From Spring Break all the way through Labor Day you will do beach ministry and also interact with people down in the ‘village’ while balloon sculpting and face painting.
What if we can’t come in the Summer?
GIM is open year round. You will want to call and make sure that the GIM calendar is open to receiving group with the intended dates you desire. Summer is the most popular time of the year for GIM and Spring Break is the second most important during the year.
